One of the first two options were better than the third.

That's just my $.02

Have done it myself, then found someone local to do it for around $30. Money well spent.

I've got a Catalyst seat that's like new and a spare stock 14 seat for sale if you want either of those.
If you're only drag racing it, the Catalyst is about as low as you can go.

The Adams seats are nice, both of my sons use them.

I know they sound better lol. But the only reason i dont want the catalyst seat is because i want to keep the rear cowl on the bike as well. I love the catalyst seat i had on my zx10. I think ill try to do it.myself. ive found seats for.$40 of ebay if i mess up that bad.

Here's what you need, very simple mod to the stock seat and it works perfectly.

The way the 14 seat is built we decided to keep the cushion and not 'thin it out' - there isn't a lot of meat in there. Instead we removed all the rubber support grommets from underneath the seat section and dropped the seat about 1/2". The fit (seat to bodywork) is better.

I had a local upholstery shop cut mine. Works great for me.

Bought mine done in the 3rd fashion you described. Not the prettiest but it works pretty well so far.
